Cruze ECO 1.4L

  • Automatic transmission
  • 110,000 miles

I am finding the repair cost for this repair to be kind of on the high end for a simple hose swap. I know they must flush and top off the transmission again but almost $300? for a entry level / daily driver car?

Cruze LT 1.4L Turbo

  • Automatic transmission
  • 56,234 miles

Was doing my own oil change at 90,000 km and noticed little red dots of oil on the bottom of pan. Went to check level, but no dipstick on transmission cap. Phoned the dealer I bought car from, made appointment and the found the lines leaking.

problem #2

Mar 032015

Cruze LS 1.8L I4

  • Manual transmission
  • 51,000 miles

Over the period since my new manual transmission was installed under warranty, transmission fluid started appearing on my garage floor. This happened under the front of the vehicle, towards the center-driver's side. Everyday, there's a good amount of fluid on the floor (not just a drop or two every other week). The dealer did not know how to fix this issue.

Cruze LS Eco

  • Automatic transmission

JUST CONCERNED IF IT IS UNDER WARRANTY. THE CAR MANUAL SAID IF TRANSMISSION IS LEAKING FLUID TO TAKE IT TO THE DEALER.
